an electrical problem shut down the one and only intake and pumping station, cutting off all access to lake water. "Thank God it was in the middle of winter," Mulroy said. "It was a scary three days I'll tell you."

to hit 1,075 feet above sea level by April 2015, triggering the first federal shortage declaration on the river and prompting water supply cuts for Nevada and Arizona. Within a month or two of that, forecasters expect the lake to drop low enough to shut down Intake No. 1 if the proposed emergency connection isn't made. If the lake's surface falls another 56 feet from where it is now, Intake No. 1 and its pumping station will stop working even with the new connection.

That $817 million project involves building a 20 foot tall, three mile long pipe beneath the bed of Lake Mead to draw water from one of the deepest parts of the reservoir. Work on the third intake began in 2008 and is already about 18 months behind schedule after several setbacks, including a construction accident that left one worker dead. 1 pump station down to the connector tunnel the contractor now is finishing 400 feet underground near the shore of Lake Mead.

Without the work, Intake No. 1 and its pump station could become inoperable if the surface of Lake Mead drops another 40 45 feet.

The loss of the Intake No. 1 pump station would leave the valley with only one working pipe and one pump station at the lake. "Postponing the work on the connection will jeopardize the water supplies available for the next year," she said.

The proposed tunneling job would extend the life of the oldest and shallowest of two intake pipes and pumping stations the community now uses to draw about 90 percent of its water from the lake.

work will require Intake No.

The plan will go to the board for a vote on Sept. 26 in the form of a change order to an existing contract with Renda Pacific, a Texas based general contractor that has spent the past three years digging a half mile long, $52 million tunnel to connect the existing Intake No. 2 with a third intake still under construction.
